Can anyone recommend a suitable bungy net that will cover the
roof rack on our pop top camper? I don't want our luggage flying off the roof on the motorway! AbsintheKombi Exec 013 Cabin : Leyland, Lancs Location : 5618 Posts : 2011-07-25 Join date :

I use a few straps on ours plus one of these: Luggage Net, although it could do with being slightly bigger.

I agree with Abs Iris, the best way to secure things is with straps like this.
They can be ratcheted down hard to make it secure, or if you use rope, use a 'truckers hitch', which does the same thing.
I have only used a net in the past if I've used a tarp to cover the load, and the net stops it flapping about. A better solution is to pack everything in waterproof stuff bags(I got mine from Aldi a couple of years back), but in all honesty, I personally try to avoid using the
rack unless absolutely necessary.
Also, it might sound obvious, but check that the rack is fixed properly fixed to the
gutters, I've seen plenty of things, including a brand new bath, and a boat, still beautifully strapped to a
rack, on the motorway.
And by the way ....Hi and welcome

Thank you. We picked our Iris up last Friday! Sooo excited! Yes, a kind of greeny blue; more turqouise I guess. We just liked the name.
Thanks everyone for the replies re: roof rack. Much appreciated. irishman Exec 003 Cabin : Hove, East Sussex Location : 1087 Posts : 2010-04-11 Join date :
